Pluto in Capricorn

As highly intelligent people such as Richard Dawkins can tell you, astrology is obviously irrational and unscientific nonsense. There is no evidence that it works. Good, that’s cleared that one up!

Those of us deluded enough to think that there is something in astrology (it has been a major part of my life for over twenty years now – I am obviously in need of psychiatric help…) are very aware of the long-term significance of Pluto in Capricorn from 2008 to 2024. Neptune, Uranus and other planets are factors but Pluto seems to be particularly relevant these days. Deep and profound change to worldwide economic and political structures is the order of the next few years, beginning with the undermining and destruction of the old ways.

Capricorn is the sign of integrity, hard reality and responsibility. As the bringer of “death and re-birth”, Pluto has just begun its transformative work in the most serious and often depressing sign of the zodiac. Recognizing limitations is a key issue for Capricorn – the limits of individual consumerism, of global capitalism and its economic model, liberalism, the number of people on this planet, climate change caused by human activity and so on and so forth. In the view of good old Russell Grant:- “The transforming planet Pluto now in Capricorn supports this need to curb wastefulness, excessive spending and uninhibited consumption.” Pluto destroys what is no longer relevant.

Capricorn the Goat values hard work, authority, respect, and achievement. The key is integrity. Individuals and organizations who take genuine responsibility are likely to thrive and re-generate. On the other hand, corrupt businesses, politicians and unnecessary government organizations are not likely to survive the next 15 years. Traditions will be renewed or discarded. Another Capricornian theme is old age – the economic consequences of an increasing elderly population have become a major social issue, in Britain at least.

Personally, I’m rather relieved that heavy-going Pluto in Capricorn doesn’t form any difficult major aspects to my own birth chart for a few years yet! By contrast, anyone born in the first two or three days of Capricorn will already have personally experienced a personal “death and re-birth” as Pluto moved over their Sun.

The key to dealing with the difficult energy of Pluto in Capricorn is integrity.

    Good article… I have Pluto opposed my soun Moon midpoint at 3 deg Cancer…not fun! But shows that the astrological asceince of midpoints is very real.

    By the way one day we will have the proof of astrology, and todays scientists will be thought of as flatlanders 😉 lol

    Have a great weekend 🙂

    I like your blog a lot – thank you!!
    I think it is interesting to observe, now, that old (literally!) leaders (Moubarak, Kaddafi – Capricorn qualities?!) are being ousted – here we go, Pluto works 🙂

    Thanks Tania, sorry this is a very late reply!
    Yes it is all increasingly obvious isn’t it? Especially as Uranus in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn is now coming into close orb, 2012-2015 with the exact squares. Best wishes for the crazy times coming – not an easy ride, for some more than others… Tim
